After update to 7.2 libreoffice cannot open documents from webdav server

I am using web application for my work, which creates RTF documents from templates for editing and after that this app creates PDF, attaches PDF signature and ship it away. When I want to edit document prepared by this application it provides me with text file which contains URL such as http://ipaddress:12345/somedir/webdav/file.rtf

Until libreoffice 7.1 I managed to open this simply by issuing command (in script or by command line) loffice http://ipaddress:12345/somedir/webdav/file.rtf

After I updated to 7.2 only splash screen appears briefly and libreoffice is closed without any error when I try to open the document.

I would greatly appreciate any help on this issue.

Let’s open the famous book by A. Pitonyak (may take time):

Sub TestWebDav
  Dim oDoc
  oDoc = StarDesktop.loadComponentFromURL("", "_blank", 0, Array()) 
End Sub

Example with .rtf file:

Sub TestWebDav2
  Dim oDoc
  oDoc = StarDesktop.loadComponentFromURL("", "_blank", 0, Array()) 
End Sub

Perhaps you have problems with specific files.

Menawhile I have found it is bug in my distribution package: 834438 – app-office/libreoffice- WebDAV broken.
